Pumpkin roll with orange center & Pumpkin Bread Recipe
I made another Libby's pumpkin roll yesterday. I had about a 1/2 cup of leftover pumpkin and decided to toss it into the filling with just a pinch of orange zest.
I ended up with a nice orange color in the center and more pumpkin flavor which I liked quite well.
I also found my Starbuck's pumpkin bread recipe and made two more of those....sort of....I changed the recipe and ended up with this Pumpkin bread chocked full of walnuts and milk chocolate chips. I am eating a piece right now with a cup of coffee. It is delish!
I think I've changed the recipe enough that I can now post it without getting into trouble. I also added all the spices as the original had none. So for all of you googling for the pumpkin bread recipe, here is my spiced up version:
Zoey's Pumpkin ChocoNut Bread
1 1/2 cups flour 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/2 tsp cloves 1/2 tsp ginger 4 eggs 1 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla 3/4 cup canned pumpkin 3/4 cup vegetable oil about 1/2 cup choc. chips about 1/2 cup walnuts - I just threw in a couple handfuls.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
Beat the sugars, eggs, and vanilla until well combined. Add the pumpkin and oil and beat for about 6o seconds.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet, using the stir feature of the electric mixer. Mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Toss in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Pour into a well greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. Start checking at one hour by sticking a skewer into the center. The loaf is done when it comes out dry. I had to cook mine for 70 minutes.
I doubled the recipe and made two loaves because it's just as easy to do two and freeze them as it is one.
If you use the 29-ounce can of Libby's Pumpkin, you can make two pumpkin loaves and one pumpkin roll with the pumpkin filling.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
